Adelaide have reportedly put forward an offer to restricted free agent Matt Crouch.

As reported by AFL.com.authe Crows are eager to retain their gun midfielder past the 2021 season, with the tabled deal estimated to be as long as a three-year extension.

A report by The Age revealed last week that Crouch - along with teammates Daniel Talia and Tom Lynch - could be up for grabs at season's end as the trio's current deals end.

Crouch and Talia are yet to feature for Matthew Nicks this year due to injury, an issue that has added to the duo's respective contract situations.

 

While Crouch is likely to gain interest from Victorian clubs, the Crows are likely to consider matching rival offers should the 26-year-old opt for free agency, according to AFL.com.au.

A Ballarat product, a return to Victoria for Crouch would see him follow in the footsteps of his older brother Brad, who ventured to St Kilda at the end of last season.

For Talia, the Crows' current rebuild could force the veteran defender out of West Lakes, while the same could be said for Lynch.

Adelaide backman Jake Kelly is another Crow who is yet to recommit to the club from 2022, but recently revealed talks with the club are underway.
